Not One, But Two Magnolia Team Members Honored in “Top 40 Under 40”

Professional Builder Reveals Its 40 Under 40 Class of 2019

Honorees are nominated for accomplishments achieved before the age of 40

Professional Builder magazine unveiled its annual 2019 40 Under 40 list of rising stars in the home building industry and both Reggie Garner, Jr., Vice President, and Whitney Harvey, VP of Sales and Marketing, are among the honorees profiled in the March 2019 issue.

This year’s class of 11 women and 29 men were selected from more than 150 nominations submitted from all regions of the United States. Their job titles range from entrepreneurs who started their own companies to designers, architects, accountants, directors of marketing, sales reps, and operations managers. Many made their mark by expanding into new markets, exceeding sales goals, or streamlining a process to create efficiencies. Others leveraged digital marketing to successfully target buyers and mastered lead generation strategies, reflecting how technology is bringing innovation to the industry’s back-office operations.

The honorees also are very active in giving back to both their local communities and abroad. A sample of that outreach includes building homes for military veterans; fundraising to provide scholarships and building trades training, and leading a campaign to complete a communal residence for young cancer patients and their families.

“Reading through the nomination forms for our 40 Under 40 program is one of the most gratifying things we do each year,” says Editorial Director Denise Dersin. “The nominees’ accomplishments, whether personal or work-related, are both substantive and inspiring; these young men and women have a bright future ahead of them, as will the home building industry because of them.”
